Chuwariwap Girls Dinner

J celebrated her birthday last night at Basix and just for fun's sake, we dressed up in 1920's inspired fashion. We had so much fun especially when C arrived in Cinderella-fashion (sans Prince Charming) and J regaled us with Shades of Grey tales. I admit I haven't read the book yet but I just might give it a try. Hahaha

My first stop was at the cheese table. Yum! Then I paired it with some dinner rolls. Can't help myself but go back for a second round, sans bread.



Cold cuts and seafood selection and salad bar.




Dessert Table. I love the chocolate fountain. Had three pieces of marshmallows coated with chocolate. Yum!



Shrimps in Garlic and Butter Sauce and Baked Mussels. So good! Nice if paired with wine, though. We drank liters of green tea. Hahaha



Roast Beef, Potato Gratin, Pita and Hummus and Veggies. My medium-well roast beef is perfect with the potatoes. I wish I had eaten more roast beef.



Mango Ice Cream.  Something's not really mango-ey with the ice-cream. It lacks the flavor that I'm craving for. But the cheese and dried fruit makes up for it. Especially the cheese! ;)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
